This one was called,
My MODERN: Celebrating Five Years of the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild
And we all submitted quilts that showed our idea of what Modern is to us! Is it…..
Use of bold colors and prints
High contrast and graphic areas of solid color
Expansive negative space
Alternate grid work
The show is over and my quilt has come home. But last month I headed over to the show with my friend Debbie and I thought I’d walk you through it with us!
The first one is a charity quilt that we all participated in. We made blocks with fabric donated by Clothworks. Two of my blocks got into this quilt! And the quilting is just lovely, done by Lisa Nolte.
I didn’t make that last block, but I want to do a whole quilt with teeny tiny half square triangles! What do you think? Would you?
Here’s mine that I hung in the show. I love love love this one, that I originally made for a show at Green Eileene. It’s funny because when I made it, it was square. but with some love it appears to not be square anymore!
So here we go! Let me show you around the show!
